Not sure if this technically counts as a casualty of the lockout or not since he played all of last season in the AHL, but former New York Islander Mark Parrish has retired, according to Michael Russo of the Minneapolis Star-Tribune.
Parrish, who will be 36 in Feb., played in parts of 12 seasons in the NHL with his best days played for the Islanders. He scored 216 career goals with 171 assists with 118 of his goals coming as an Isle.
He was with the Senators last season on a two-way deal, but spent the entire season in the AHL and scored 30 points in 51 games there. His last NHL season was in 2010-11 with the Buffalo Sabres and he played in just two games.
Parrish is currently serving as a color analyst for St. Cloud State, where he went to school, and hopes to get into coaching soon. He’s also one of the few hockey players that is still actually getting paid as the Minnesota Wild owe him $927,778 this year and next year as part of a buyout agreement of his five-year, $13.25 million deal that he signed before the 2006-07 season.
If you do count this as a lockout casualty then add him to the list with Jaroslav Spacek, Andy Sutton, and probably quite a few other veterans who are holding out hope but may never get to play again.
